Supreme Court set to tackle same-sex marriage, Mormon Church shifts stance on homosexuality

The Supreme Court announced Friday that they will pick-up two constitutional challenges to state and federal laws on the issue. And the Mormon church seems to be softening its stance against homosexuality - for the first time saying sexuality is not a choice.

But this isn't a complete 180. A statement on a new church-funded website devoted to the issue reads:

"The experience of same-sex attraction is a complex reality for many people. The attraction itself is not a sin, but acting on it is."

So how significant s this shift? And what are the broader religious and political implications?

Supreme Court will tackle same-sex marriage

If the Supreme Court follows public opinion, the decision could come down in favor of gay and lesbian couples. Recent polling shows 53% of americans think same-sex marriage should be legal. 46% say illegal.
